Bucky's Cowboy Sweater



Pattern: The Jean Jacket by Judith L. Swartz, published in Dogs in Knits
Yarn: Paton Classic Wool
Needle: US Size 8
Cost: About $10 including buttons
Model: Bucky the black pug, 13 years old
Notes: This is Bucky's first official sweater, because he really prefers to be nekkid, thank you very much. He kept the sweater on for about ten minutes, enough time for me to get a few shots, gave me lots of dirty looks. What do you think you are doing mom? Henry sewed on all the buttons.


 
Here is the tongue. I can lick the top of my nose, can you? There are cowboy hat buttons on the front.




Bucky does not carry any money in those back pockets. We decided to put all the extra buttons on the hem, or the butt, seems perfect placement for some boots.

Love the tongue pic..priceless! What a great sweater! My chihuahua doesn't like sweaters either and her whole underside is naked bare skin. She has a whole drawer full too that I've made and runs when I go near that drawer! Have a great DOT!

Bucky has asked to be paid off in cookies for his modeling work.
